Printing A PDF File

I have a friend who has a Mac Desktop.

She tried to print out a 26 page document her accountant sent her but was only able to print the first page (the rest were blank) even though Print Preview showed everything.

Her accountant said that a Mac couldn't printout a PDF document created using a Windows computer.

Can that be correct?

That's about using a virtual printer (one comes with nearly every pdf reader) to copy non-pdf documents (Word docs, pictures, web pages, whatever) into pdf format. Nothing at all to do with the OP's problem.

Hi Bonnie, what PDF reader/viewer is she using? Can she print other PDF files?

A Mac computer can print a PDF file created in Windows. We have a mixed computer system at my company. Windows, Mac, Linux and we all share and print files.
Has she tried printing the PDF file as an image? Often if a user is having a problem printing a PDF file we try that. In the printer properties menu there is an option to "print as image" which is really what a PDF file is, an image of a file. Try that option.
Also make sure the PDF viewer is up to date and that the Mac OS is up to date.

Sunny,

I can't really answer any of your questions. I do know she said she has printed short PDF files in the past, just not anything 26 pages long. She went to her accountant who printed out the 26 pages.

I'll pass your suggestions on to her.
